Milford Kindergarten Registration Info

Milford Kindergarten registration begins in March

MILFORD – Kindergarten registration dates have been set throughout the Milford public school district. Parents with children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall (for the 2011-12 academic year) are asked to call their local school to schedule an appointment to register. Parents can pick up registration materials at the school beginning February 28th during normal operating hours prior to the official registration date. It is recommended parents complete the required forms prior to attending the official registration session.

A child must reach the age of 5 before January 1, 2012 in order to start kindergarten in the fall. At the time of registration, parents must bring the following items to complete the registration process:

- A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate (with a raised seal);
- A record of any communicable diseases the child may have had;
- A record of the child’s immunization schedule; and
- Two proofs of residency (examples include a current utility bill, mortgage receipt/rent receipt).

Before entry into school in August, each child must have a physical examination that includes a hemoglobin or hematocrit test, vision, hearing, and speech screening. The physical examination cannot have been done earlier than 12 months prior to the date the child enters school.

For more information, please contact your neighborhood school. The dates for kindergarten registration are as follows:

John F. Kennedy: March 7--10
Orange Avenue: March 14 – 17
Mathewson: March 21 – 24
Live Oaks: March 29 – April 1
